Weather observations for November 17, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters     +1, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the S
1860 meters     +4, Winds were 10-15 KPH from the E
1550 meters     +4,  Relative Humidity 35 %
  660 meters      -8, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest was +1

   Clear skies and unlimited visibility over Whistler this AM. Cirrus cloud will form this morning.

For the forecast, the high pressure will persist for another day with clear skies and inverted temperatures. There is a good chance of some cirrus cloud development today. The upper ridge should move on Tuesday with some cloud development but dry weather into Wednesday evening and continued high freezing levels (approx 3000M). The models are changing quickly, as of now we should see a weak front move in  Wednesday evening with lowering freezing levels and very light precipitation.Thursday will be mostly cloudy with some very light precipitation (FL lowering to 1500 meters by the evening).  Friday should usher in a slightly stronger frontal system with  light precipitation and freezing levels hovering around 1200 meters. There is not much certainty in the longer range models at this time but looks like we may get a good Westerly flow with seasonal temperatures and some welcome moisture beyond Saturday. 

    Some moisture along the coast.

    It appears the high is in no rush to get the boot. Does look promising for a change!

    Wednesday is even looking dry now.

    GFS has a very weak low moving in for Thursday.
